      Really good! I only made the cakes with the sauce. I didn't have pimentos so I used capers and those worked great. The sauce really gave these a light, fresh taste. Thanks for posting the recipe.

      These were quite good, even though I didn't make the accompanying sauce; we just splashed on some soy sauce and served the patties with rice. Also, I made the patties quite small, forming them in the pan with a spoon since the tuna mixture was messy to work with. I will definitely make these again. Thank you!

      I was pleasantly surprised as to how tasty this turned out!!! I believe it was the simple sauce that really brought out the flavors. I didn't have enough mixture for eight patties, mine turned out on the "thin" side. Still delicious though. I will definitely be making these again! Thank you chef#253974 :)
